City GuideRochester
Drink to this! If you want to find the most historical site in Rochester, MI, technically it's on the property of a liquor store! So, the next time you're stocking up on beer for the weekend, just think about the first settlers of Rochester who lived in a log cabin at that very site nearly 200 years ago.

Rochester today doesn't resemble the early days when this town was home to settlers, and it's not an industrial center like it was during World War II when it was home to production facilities like the Western Knitting Mills Factory. Today, Rochester is a clean, safe suburb of Detroit in popular Oakland County. Madonna grew up here, and Eminem reportedly currently lives in the area, too. Rochester retains a charming small-town feeling while still giving you easy access to the rest of the metropolitan Detroit area.

Moving to Rochester

Rochester has something for everybody, whether you are looking for a one-bedroom apartment or a house for rent. The quaint but bustling downtown Rochester area has apartments above shops, which could be perfect for people who want to be within walking distance of their latte fix. For people who prefer the privacy of large suburban lots, Rochester has that, too.

If you want to live in Rochester, you need to make sure your credit is in tip-top shape, or at least that you've got someone who can vouch for you. Rochester landlords like to make sure you have a good job and enough money to pay the rent, and that your previous rental references can convince them you won't trash the place.

Neighborhoods in Rochester

Rochester is a pretty typical suburban area and doesn't have a lot of strongly distinct neighborhoods, other than the well-designed downtown area. However, some places in town where people like to live include the following:

Adams: This is an established neighborhood that includes a good mix of apartments, townhomes and houses. You can find good rental property here, but it costs a little more than average.

Livernois-Tienken: This neighborhood has a lot of newer properties and considerably higher rents -- but it can be worth it with its easy access to major roads like Rochester Road and Dequindre.

Baldwin: This neighborhood has newer homes, many with four bedrooms, and is popular because it includes the Paint Creek trail and park area.

Living in Rochester

The city of Rochester works hard to make sure this a great place to live and that you'll never get bored. You're only 26 miles from the city center of Detroit, and that's good for when you want to go see a Tigers game or enjoy the Renaissance Center -- but you certainly don't have to leave quiet little Rochester when you want to have fun. Rochester has lots of city festivals and events, like the two-day Fire and Ice Festival and the "Rockin' Rods" classic car show.

Rochester also has some beautiful parks, even if they're buried under snow for nearly half the year. Put your skis on! The Rotary Gateway Park has pretty views and is a peaceful place to spend an afternoon, while the Paint Creek Trail is 8.5 miles long and connects Rochester to nearby Lake Orion.

February 2019 Rochester Rent Report

Welcome to the February 2019 Rochester Rent Report. Rochester rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Rochester rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Rochester rents increased significantly over the past month

Rochester rents have increased 0.5% over the past month, and have increased slightly by 1.9% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Rochester stand at $1,010 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,310 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in November of last year. Rochester's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.4%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

    Rents rising across the Detroit Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Rochester, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Detroit metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Dearborn has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 3.3%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,340, while one-bedrooms go for $1,030.
    • Taylor has the least expensive rents in the Detroit metro, with a two-bedroom median of $890; rents were down 0.2% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

    Rochester rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased slightly in Rochester, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Rochester is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Rents increased marginally in other cities across the state, with Michigan as a whole logging rent growth of 0.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.2% in Lansing and 0.1% in Grand Rapids.
    • Rochester's median two-bedroom rent of $1,310 is above the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.0% over the past year compared to the 1.9% increase in Rochester.
    • While Rochester's rents rose slightly over the past year, the city of Baltimore saw a decrease of 0.7%.
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Rochester than most large cities. For example, Chicago has a median 2BR rent of $1,270, which is undefined the price in Rochester.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
